[QUOTE]In Response to Re: hate to say this tyler seguin is a bust : Usually you show more knowledge then this in your posts. Lets flip the script here and say he was in Toronto on a team rebuilding where he would be playing on the top 2 lines. Getting more ice time and more time to prove himself. That would be the ideal position for the kid. Just like Hall in Edmonton. He came into a team where there is no room for him on the top 2 lines. and after the trades theres no room on the 3rd line for him to develop. instead hes out there with the slugs, barely seeing any ice time

I am not commenting on his impact, I am commenting on what he does on the ice. If he makes plays and Thornton isn't finishing, that's one thing, if he's making shovel passes to the corner or taking wrist shots from 2 feet in the zone, that's another.
He needs to be much, much better. Not once this year has he been our best player. Not once this year has he really controlled a shift. Not once this year, except maybe his first goal against Phoenix, has he wowed anyone. These are problems.
I know I am being harsh on a 19-year-old, but come on, he needs to be much better.
Does anyone else here believe that if he didn't sell jerseys and/or was eligible for the AHL, he would be here?
EDIT: If he was in Toronto, maybe the silly mistakes would be disregarded as just a member of a garbage team, but they're still not good plays. He makes too many bad plays in relation to good ones and that is problematic.
